politics poll average has warren up by 4.5. politico is up there in boston covering the race. dave, thanks for joining us from politico. >> absolutely. >> let me ask you about that race. it seems like something happened a couple weeks ago. was it the mayor's endorsement and putting all the troops? but that's only 8% of the electorate. what got her on top of the race? >> i think it's women voters that were in brown's camp, still sort of flirting with him this summer in polls, moving towards warren, and i talked to some pollsters and voters on the ground today, and that's all you hear about on the airwaves, in the messaging. it's all designed to court women voters. some of them declaring themselves independents, although democrats have a big registration advantage up here 3 to 1, but i think if you look inside the polls, that's what's given warren the lead. brown still beats her among independents overall, but he's losing female voters. she has widened the gender gap. >> you're going to have a big turnout. not like january of 2010 when he won that first time. here are the closing ads from wa
, very well the folks in boston who are running the romney campaign are looking at the numbers and they know it is that much harder to unseat a sitting president when your approval numbers are close to 50% and maybe even above it. >> david, we had the radical governors in a number of states on the republican side who have refused to work with the president and stalled a great deal. in fact, they have attacked public sector workers, some 3 million public sector jobs have been let go in the four years here, especially in the last couple of years there has been a lot of them. what if they had not been let go? what would our economy look like? >> well, we would be in much better shape, ed. you can figure out how much the economy needed stimulus, it is a simple mathematical equation. spending equals income. income equals spending. if one goes down, the other has to go down. when the private sector goes into recession, that's when the government should increase spending. when the private sector is doing well, that's when you cut back on government spending. that's what clinton was do
final frenzy, that last bit of energy now that boston these candidates are giving it with just three days to go. let's go over the president's schedule. he started in ohio. they are in milwaukee at this point waiting for the president. he's airborne heading in that direction towards wisconsin. iowa and virginia. he end up in virginia and northern virginia tonight. i'll be out there accompanied by the dave matthews band. i'm looking forward to it. tomorrow sunday in new hampshire. florida. ohio. back to ohio and colorado. monday wisconsin, guess where, ohio after that. and then iowa before he finishes up in chicago where he will spend election eve. ohio we should mention nbc news and the marist organization yesterday put out their poll for ohio has the president up six. a whopping margin compared to what we've seen in the past. our poll even has the president up two in florida. so the obama team certainly optimistic and down the stretch they come to keep that sports metaphor going. >> love it. thank you. >> as for the challenger mitt romney needs to rally his troops and out gun the p
, politics and public policy. good afternoon to boston you. >> hi there. >> doug i'll start with you. we pay attention to the presidential candidates. generally speaking how much of an impact can something like a fight over judges, how much of an impact can something like this happen when it comes to voter turnout? >> kit have a huge impact especially on the local level and in this case on state level. what's at stake here are a couple of things. first of all to what degree will the supreme court remain independent from either political party. in florida, in the '70s they stopped voting for supreme court justice and they were being afrointd a nominating list that the governor then would appeal to in order to appoint the justices and then they stood for retention. the coke brothers another far right-wing group here have tar get these particular justices because they want to really impose willy-nilly their will upon florida. you know, they control the legislature, they control the governor's office now they want to control the supreme -- now t will be overloaded with people who can be appointe
strange. >> here is why the romney campaign in boston probably is uncomfortable with what chris christie was doing. he was their number one attack dog. remember, he was the keynote speaker at the convention. he was the one that was able to not only throw the red meat and then stand in front of the crowd an just tear it apart and everyone would cheer and scream. and hurricane sandy comes threw, and he is gone. he is not filling that role anymore hi, see also the guy who in that keynote speech could barely bring himself to say mitt romney's name. it wasn't like he was the most ardent romney lover. >> and even when he was -- he was one of the first guys out of the gate to endorse romney, which i think is surprising. constitutionally they seem like such different people. i have been saying for a while on the show, and i believe this is true. you know, part of my problem with mitt romney's candidacy is i feel he has an incredibly crass view of the american public, and really doesn't hold them in particularly high regard in so far he has changed his position on all of these issues numerous tim
of his top advisers that he's known in boston for more than a decade. they're taking pictures on the stairs. the plane, a sense we're going to give this one last go here on the long strange trip we've been on. interesting hope and nostalgia from the romney camp today. >> it's interesting. nostalgia. is that coupled with a positive sense? a negative sense? sometimes you would rather be looking forward, i would presume, than looking back. >> well, i think it's still a positive thing. remember, this is a guy who's been running for president of the country for the last six years. with most of the same team. all of whom will be happy to get the campaign behind them one way or another. i can tell you on the plane today was ike leavitt, running the transition projects for governor romney. so they're certainly not discounting the possibility he's going to win this thing. >> and i understand as we're looking at a picture of mitt romney and his wife ann there by his side, she was traveling around through the plane and made a stop back there with the media. >> that's right. we haven't se
